The Slovenian Medical Academy (SMA) was established at the beginning of 2017 by the Slovenian Medical Association. With its establishment, Slovenia joins the 23 other European countries with Medical Academies.
The Slovenian Academy of Medicine represents the professional and ethical highpoint of Slovenian medicine as it brings together experts recognized for their achievements at home and abroad. The establishment of the Slovenian Academy of Medicine is the result of many years of efforts by the medical profession. Above all, it is an important achievement, as its mission is to address critical public issues and problems related to medicine.
The Slovenian Academy of Medicine has also launched a research institute, enabling local experts to carry out key research in medical science.
